Chicken turns this Greek-inspired salad into a substantial main course. Feel free to substitute other chopped fresh vegetables, such as broccoli or bell peppers, for the tomatoes or cucumber. Use leftover chicken, store-roasted chicken or quickly poach a couple boneless, skinless chicken breasts while you prepare the rest of the salad. Serve with pita bread and hummus.

Tips

Tip: If you don't have cooked chicken, poach 1 pound chicken breasts for this recipe. Place boneless, skinless chicken breasts in a medium skillet or saucepan. Add lightly salted water (or chicken broth) to cover and bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to low and simmer gently until the chicken is cooked through and no longer pink in the middle, 10 to 15 minutes.

Tasty and surprisingly filling! I made a half recipe of this for myself and my husband (we call him the meat eater.) I loved it and so did he! It made enough to be filling for a summer supper with a glass of wine. I used the dried oregano and the dressing which looked like it wasn't going to be enough when I started was tasty and plenty to cover the salad. I'll definitely make this again! Read More

I love this salad SO MUCH! It fills you up and is easy to make. I used oregano in the dressing instead of the dill since I don't like dill very much and it was awesome. TRY THIS RECIPE! Read More

I LOVE this salad! It is such a filling and low calorie meal. Since discovering it I have had it several times a month. But I don't use olive oil (I spray the salad with olive oil Pam) and I use low calorie Feta cheese to save even more calories. I also add a tablespoon of white vinegar to the mix. Soooo good! (I have the dill weed--I don't like it with oregano). Read More

One of the very best salads I've ever had. I really like the "sharp" brisk vinegar/dill flavor. I now make this salad often. Also you can wrap it in your favorite pita or flat bread....yummmmmmm!! Read More

Great fufilling Salad! I'm eating this salad as I type. It is so yummy satisfying and tasty and one portion of salad is more than enough to fill your belly. I used Shallots for a bit of kick and opted for the dried dill weed because it was on hand and it worked great. Definitely a salad I will be making in the future. Pros: Filling Light on Fat Great to Look at Done in 30 Mins Cons: Prep Work Read More
